Lúnasa Festival 2018 – Monday Memories: Hidden History of Derrymore

Lúnasa Festival 2018 – Monday Memories: Hidden History of Derrymore

Join Malachy Conway, Archaeologist for the National Trust in Northern Ireland, for an engaging and informative evening delving into the hidden history of Derrymore House demesne.

Malachy has carried out extensive surveys of the 100 acres of Derrymore House demesne. The earliest existing feature in the surrounding area is a Bronze Age standing stone, while at Derrymore itself, an Early Christian Rath is the earliest remaining feature. The Derrymore we know today is largely the result of the creation of a historic parkland in the late 18th Century, but even this has been amended by successive owners, with buildings such as gate lodges, mills and access roads created and removed and re-created.

If there is anything you wanted to know about the history of Derrymore, now is your opportunity to find out as well as share your own memories and stories of the demesne in the past, not to mention see inside the historic Derrymore House.  Numbers are strictly limited, so early booking is essential.

Please note: There are no public toilets on site as yet. Visitors should park at the Visitors’ car park, situated beside Derrymore House.

Cost: Free
